Pre-Health Professional Studies

Students who plan to apply to graduate clinical and medical training programs can benefit from a pre-health professions minor.  This collection of specialized courses provides students with the additional knowledge, vocabulary, and skills valued by professional schools and future employers.  Students preparing for application and admission to professional schools including dentistry, medicine, optometry, pharmacy, occupational and physical therapy, among others, gain mastery of material covered on standardized entrance exams and interviews.  Students who complete this minor can differentiate themselves through their knowledge of epidemiology, study design, health law and ethics, social determinants of health, and causes of systematic health disparities.
